Before books, students had to tote engraved granite slabs through the halls of schools, which is why the most accomplished philosophers gave the best piggyback rides. Enjoy lighter reading material with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of children's books, toys, and DVDs at Blue Bunny Books & Toys in Dedham.
Blue Bunny Books & Toys keeps children's inquisitive gears spinning with an extraordinary array of books, toys, puppets, and art supplies. The vast imagination vault houses an extensive collection of children's books, including signed copies by the shop's owner, children's author Peter H. Reynolds. Early readers can peruse the literary labyrinth to discover award-winning chapter books, such as Judy Moody ($15.99), as well as signed copies of The Dot, an inspirational story with vibrant illustrations ($14). In addition to exercising page-turning muscles, customers can explore kids’ craft kits ($12.99+), sticker and activity books ($6.99), and lunch boxes, water bottles, and pencil cases ($7.99+) that can easily fit a tablet computer. To keep kids as curious as always, the staff performs free gift-wrapping services on any and all purchases. Though not available with this Groupon, Blue Bunny Books & Toys regularly hosts creative workshops and events that encourage community involvement and reinforce the habits of children who say the darnedest four-letter words, such as math or darn.
Peter H. Reynolds, co-owner of The Blue Bunny Books and Toys, knows his books—he’s even a published author, with his illustrations adorning popular children’s titles such as the Judy Moody series and several Judy Blume novels. That love of the printed word is reflected in his family’s store, filled with an array of books for children and grownups. In addition to literature, customers can peruse a selection of DVDs and children's diversions such as albums, sticker books, craft kits, lunchboxes, and puppets that can be trained to bark on command. The Blue Bunny also hosts special events, such as workshops, preschool story hours, and book signings from celebrities such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney.
